    People should say nice things not stupid things like don't hunt simple solution. Some people have a passion and enjoy hunting he was one of them. It was a accident and accidents happen. He could have thought the safety was on, who knows what really happen, we will never really know now. What if someone was in a car wreck and died, would you say don't drive simple solution. It was his just time to go nobody can control that but the good Lord. God Bless the Family and please continue to pray for them even though the funeral is over they still are having a hard time, they lost a son and it will always hard.

    It doesn't matter what happen! The only thing that matters is his mother and father lost their son and there is a little boy scared for life from this tragic accident. I hope everyone will be wanting to know how they are doing instead of wanting to know what happen. I would like to say to the family I am very sorry for your loss and I will pray for your family and for the child that was in the stand with him. I hunt and love it, it could've been me or anyone else. A situation like this makes you think about when its your time you can never be safe enough God will take you when he is ready. I will continue to use and teach gun safety but it really doesn't matter when got calls you home.

    Ron: We have all the details we need. We do not need the morbid details in a story. All we need to know was that a young man died [doing something he loved from other posts]in a tragic accident. If you want gory details become a mortician or something. I do not know if there is one or two families grieving at this point nor is it any of my business. I will admit to being curious about the details but if was my family I would not want it plastered all over the news.All i have left say is this. GOD please take this young man and let him serve YOU in what way YOU see fit. AMEN.

    Ron, you do show your ignorance. The family may have wanted the details kept private for certain reasons. You're just upset cause you don't know all the details.

    Meridian: This IS Mississippi,hunting and fishing is a way of life here.To some of us only God and sometimes family comes before the other two. Hunter: Meant no disrespect.Don't know the details of what happened nor do I want to. Just don't want it to happen again.Again meaning no disrespect I believe all accidents can be prevented if some action before the accident was taken however improbable. As a fellow hunter I hear they only have 12 points and better in Heaven. Good hunting young man. Amen.

    I was in Butler at the time of the accident, visiting my brother which is a Game Warden of Choctaw County, and he told me the sad story when we seen each other after the accident and he was crying. Even though we have been trained in Hunter Safety, we can never for one second let Safety out of our head lights. This was a accident and nothing more, but remember that we should always keep a loaded firearm on safety until the target has been clearly defined and until then the safety should remain on. I feel the pain and sorry for the family and the 8 year old little boy that was in the stand with him at the time. So with everything said, may the angles guide him, and for the family to know that they have a angle looking down from above. God bless..

    @rhonda news stories should have details, that's what makes it a story and not just a headline. we are all nosey and concerned, including you. if you say you're not you are a liar. keep up the praying though, the world seems to be getting better every day thanks to you.

    And why are you worried about the news not having all the details? Are you just nosey or concerned? Worry more about praying for the family instead of the details

    He did know gun safety. It was an accident.I knew the boy and he had hunted for years and his dad had taught him how to be safe,it was just his time and when your time comes there is not stopping or preventing it.He was a sweet boy and will be greatly missed my many including myself.
